I just realized that other than Mass effect series, once I finished a game, I don't really care to play the story DLCs that are not integrated in the main story. I feel like those side stories are not really important and give a minimal impact to the storytelling. Sure it can be interesting to see the background of certain characters, but since ultimately they are side stories, they are not that important. I haven't finished most of the side story DLCs from the games that I bought.

I don't understand why the developers cannot integrate the side stories in the main game.

Do you play / finish all the story DLCs that are not integrated in the main game?

If I really like the game, sure.

If it results in nothing beneficial whatsoever and just wastes time for the sake of wasting time, I'd probably skip it though. But I can't say I've played any game I really liked that also had lazy devs who'd just make DLC to waste time, so meh.

I tend towards just doing the missions that help expand lore. I'm more interested in the storytelling aspect of sidequests than bonus dungeons and endless challenges. They can often help bring new details and meaning to the main story and game as a whole, which helps me get lost in the virtual world.

If a sidequest doesn't contribute anything to the game's immersion, I feel like it's a waste of time (and money in the case of DLCs).

Depends on the game, if it's a big RPG like Skyrim or Oblivion where you WANT more then DLC is great. Provided a lot more content for an already-big game like Skyrim or Oblivion, really I care about DLC for RPG games, not usually DLC that adds items though unless they are really that good.

It's really entirely dependent on the game and the developers. I enjoyed the DLC in Fallout: New Vegas, but not the ones in Fallout 4. If the game has a solid world I want to learn more about, good characters, or really fun gameplay, I'm going to want to get DLC for it, just to experience more of that specific game, even if its not related to the main story.

I love expansions and story DLC when it's done right. Notable examples are the DLCs for Fallout: New Vegas and The Witcher 3. Sometimes I'll burn through a game and then feel an intense craving for more things from that world, or featuring those characters that I've come to love. I wish every game did it as good as Witcher 3. Blood & Wine was incredible.
